Haven't we always said that HK's ARE THE BARBIE of firearms? You can dress them up. Dress them down.
There is an HK firearm for every person out there. SOME OF US have more than one (as you well know)...
It's a bad habit that I'm GLAD TO HAVE.
And a little more than 20 years ago, while I was in gunsmithing school, I used to share a table and back in the day, I used to 'bling up' AK's with touches of gold (screw and levers). It made them fly off my table. EVERY TIME! Personally I didn't understand but to each his own.
